TEAM CAPTAINS AND VICE CAPTAINS
At any level of cricket, the Captain is a vital part of team performance, camaraderie, player development and enjoyment. Within the framework of the Club’s Constitution and guiding principles, each team Captain sets the standards for players to attain.
Captains earn the respect of players, opponents and umpires through their personal behaviours and actions. This in turn reﬂects how Northern Counties Cricket Club is regarded in cricketing circles and the broader community.
To be successful ALL our Captains and Vice Captains need to be on board with consistent, strong and positive messages regarding our club behaviours, culture, our past history and our future.
The Captains should lead by example, at training and on game day, by creating an environment based on enjoyment, self-improvement, putting the team ﬁrst and playing to win.
